Nebraska ProStart is seeking your support in “Building the Future of the Industry”.
The Nebraska Restaurant Association Hospitality Education Foundation (NRAHEF) sponsors a national secondary school culinary arts and foodservice management curriculum in schools across Nebraska.
Currently there are 22 Nebraska schools from the Panhandle to the Missouri River with locations in Scottsbluff, Hemingford, Alliance, North Platte, Kearney, Grand Island, Milford, Lincoln, Crete, Beatrice, Elkhorn, Plattsmouth, Papillion LaVista and Fremont.
Approximately 1200 Nebraska students are enrolled yearly. Throughout the year, students refine their culinary skills, study management principles and develop personal confidence. A high light of each year is executing a menu or developing a restaurant business plan for the Nebraska State ProStart Competition.
The most accomplished culinary and management teams represent Nebraska at the National ProStart Invitational where they compete with teams from the other 49 states, Guam and Department of Defense European Teams.
Educators frequently ask NRAHEF for recommendations of industry professionals to enhance classroom instruction by:
- demonstrating a culinary technique
- speaking to a class about careers
- developing a restaurant concept
- mentoring a competition team
- providing a work place tour
Depending on the topic and educator request, presentations may range from 30 to 50 minutes. In classroom presentations are encouraged. However, to facilitate schedules, remote delivery can be facilitated.
